Barielle - Elle's Spell

I do believe it has been way to long since I've had a flakie manicure, so it was time for a other one. This beauty is Barielle Elle's Spell. A red flakie that shifts to gold and then blue/green. The flakies are suspended in a burgundy jelly base. Since the base is sheer, I decided to layer the polish over black. It is kind of a prerequisite for me to test a flakie over black since in my opinion that is when it shines. I have, however, seen swatches of it layered over burgundy polishes and it is also gorgeous, so that is on my to try list...

Most of the flakie polishes that I own consist of multi-colored flakies, so I love that these are all the same. Layered over black it has a very rich velvety look. This is three coats of Elle's Spell layered over black...

A bit of the color shift...
